Hall­berg Rassy 340

Yachting Monthly - - BOATS & EQUIPMENT -

Hot on the heels of the Hall­berg Rassy 44 (in boat­ing terms at least), and in a sim­i­lar vein, is the Hall­berg Rassy 340. With twin rud­ders and wheels, fold­down tran­som, in­te­gral bowsprit and large, clear coachroof and hull win­dows, she’s the spit­ting im­age of her big sis­ter. As stan­dard she comes with a tiller, but I sus­pect most own­ers will opt for twin wheels.

Be­low deck there’s an L-shaped gal­ley next to the com­pan­ion­way and tucked a lit­tle aft to star­board. While there’s an elec­tri­cal panel to port, she has no chart table as stan­dard – the space gained is brought into the sa­loon. The heads is sit­u­ated for­ward, aft of the fore­cabin with its vee-berth.

On deck, the main­sheet comes down to a small track on the cock­pit sole. There’s also a large cock­pit locker to star­board, which should ac­com­mo­date most of the cruis­ing para­pher­na­lia one would wish to carry on a yacht of this size.

Who would she suit?

A cou­ple, per­haps with a small fam­ily or oc­ca­sional guests, look­ing to do some coastal and off­shore cruis­ing in a high-qual­ity yacht.

Sim­i­lar to the HR44, the new 340 shares many of her good fea­tures
